We are proud to announce that two of our pieces were selected as official Honorees to the 20th Annual Webby Awards. The Webbys honor excellence on the internet around the globe, from websites to online film and video production.
At Long Story Short, we constantly push ourselves to evolve and try new things for ourselves and our clients. Our first honoree piece, “A History of the Cocktail,” was a collaborative project with DC entrepreneur and cocktail historian Derek Brown. We created a living timeline on one of Derek’s bars – we think it makes for fascinating history, and even better drinking. The piece was also used by the National Archives for their “Spirited Republic” exhibit last year.
Our second piece, #AsktheHIVDoc was produced in partnership with Kaiser Family Foundation and the Greater Than AIDS Initiative. In this series, two expert doctors offer a light-hearted approach to tough questions surrounding HIV/AIDS and gay men’s health. Many of the questions were crowd-sourced over social media – everything you wanted to know about HIV, but were perhaps afraid to ask.
